What kind of school activities do you do on days when your kids are sick enough to need rest a good part of the day, but not sick enough to veg all day? My boys are both in that inbetween stage of feeling better and still not being well. I have managed to squeeze in at least halfoftheir lessons this week, but I want to give them a bit of a break today without watching Tv all day.

     I give my kids books to read, even the ones who cant read.

    We have been doing a lot of reading, it's great, but I think they will be bored with it soon.

     Do you have easy work they can do?  Something like fun worksheets we might have done when we were kids in public school.  Or they could just color.

    They usually prefer to do something simple like math or grammar worksheets in bed.  If they are more sick than well I just ask that they read, or they can sit up and watch something that is somewhat educational, like a documentary, or a movie based on a true story.  You could give them worksheets on things they've already done, and call it a review period until they are well.

    I tend to do books and let them watch educational stuff on netflix.  I will also let them squeeze in a few shows that they really enjoy as well.

    Games, books, documentaries, drawing, art, science project, playdoh, lego building, (if older, direct the lego building to see who can build the strongest bridge or something.)   Magnets, etc.

    Books, TV shows/movies, video games, board/card games or surfing the internet for cool new science & history information.
